DFA Records is proud to announce the release of In Remembrance, a multimedia project by acclaimed contemporary artist Delia Gonzalez. Delia transplanted from Miami to New York City in the mid-1990s, working in various dance and guerilla theatre troupes. It was around this time that she met synth wizard Gavin Russom, beginning a series of multi-disciplinary collaborations, one of the most notable being their album of cosmic acid-house The Days of Mars, released by DFA in 2005. Single “Relevee” is oft-cited as one of the high points of DFA’s early years, especially the monstrous remix by Detroit techno legend Carl Craig.

In Remembrance is the next landmark in Delia’s artistic pursuits. The album originates in a 2010 solo show of the same name at Galleria Fonti in Naples, which was further realized in 2012, with additional films, in the exhibition “I Must Stop Here”. The music was initially inspired by a text by Henry Miller and a theory by spiritual teacher George Gurdjieff, which states that “to play scales is to become more in tune with your inner self.” This coincided conceptually with the music that Delia had been making at the time. Both exhibitions consisted of four 16mm ballet dance films, accompanied by music composed by Gonzalez. In her words, “The film is meant to re-create the fleeting sensation of inspiration - that sacred feeling when suddenly your mind clears and you know exactly what you’re meant to create and become.”
The films were exhibited for a third time at the Clocktower Gallery in New York City in 2013, featuring a live electronic adaption of the composition, performed with New York underground musicians Bryce Hackford and Alice Cohen. Bryce later contributed four remixes, which are included on this album. Delia explains; “When I lived in Berlin I became good friends with the artist and musician Viktor Timofeev, who kept telling me about his best friend Bryce, who he played music with. In 2012 we were all in Vienna participating in a show entitled You Are Free. There I met Bryce and I instantly loved him. In 2013 I moved to NYC temporarily and ran into him at the New Museum and he said, “we should get together and play.” I took him up on it.”
